Opportunity - Senior Employee Benefits Administrator

Gower Financial Services – JOIN OUR TEAM in the role of Senior Employee Benefits Administrator

Our team offer an extensive range of administration services to local clients. Our Employee benefits admin team in particular are well recognised locally for offering exceptional service to employers in assisting them to establish and administer their employee benefits packages, such as private medical insurance, pension schemes, death in service and income protection to name a few.

The increased complexity and high degree of regulatory requirements are a major reason for companies outsourcing their benefit package administration to our team of experts.

Gower’s role

We assist local businesses in providing the right level of ‘benefits’ for their workforce helping to retain top talent and ensuring their business maintains a competitive edge. Many companies put off introducing or managing benefits because they are concerned about the level of work involved and don’t fully understand what the products actually do until they need to call on them when something goes wrong! We are able to offer local businesses ‘peace of mind’ in establishing and administering their company schemes, leaving them to get on with managing their own business needs, safe in the knowledge that if anything happens to a team member we are on hand to step in and provide support.

We currently have a vacancy for an additional experienced employee benefits administrator in a full time role (9-5). This person will be expected to have employee benefits experience with a key attribute for attention to detail and accuracy. The role will support the day to day administration needs of our corporate clients and requires a high degree of confidentiality. The role involves speaking with company HR teams and owners to establish their needs and then referral to insurance providers such as Aviva, Prudential, Canada Life, Unum, Zurich, Axa global healthcare and Bupa to provide the product. Regular reviews are carried out with our clients/companies and the administrators will be heavily involved with client meetings providing a support role.

Role attributes

  • Experience in employee benefits and a good attention to detail are paramount for this role
  • A ‘can do’ attitude with a will to go the extra mile for clients
  • The desire to look beyond the basic day to day admin tasks will enable the individual to develop key client relationships and to help our EB team build on our existing excellent reputation and USP
  • The ability to ‘multi task’ is necessary as several outstanding tasks are managed on a daily basis
  • A pleasant telephone manner, a sense of fun, and a ‘team player’ ethic are essential

 

This is an exciting time to be joining our team having been relocated back to our waterfront offices at Weighbridge House in St Peter Port, so career progression will be available for candidates with aptitude and a desire to progress professionally once they have established themselves as one of our trusted team.

The team will also be implementing a new database during 2021 so a willingness to get involved with this project will be essential.
